Well, as expected, John Schuerholz and Bud Selig were elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame on Sunday by the Today's Game committee. Schuerholz was voted in unanimously; he got all 16 votes. Selig got 15 of the 16. I figured there were enough votes for one more person to come close, but as it turns out there there were not. Lou Piniella got seven of the 16 votes -- you needed 12 to get in. None of the other candidates got even five votes. I'm a bit surprised it was Piniella and not Steinbrenner who garnered moderate support, but it doesn't really matter. This was the John and Bud Show from the start.
